Turbine Powered Waterfall Base Light

Drop at the base of any outdoor waterfall to give stunning night time effect with no maintenance.

Mounted at the splash point of natural waterfalls, these powerful LED light arrays would not only light up the pool where the water was falling but the fall as well.

Turbine powered generators receive power from the water flow to light the LEDs making this a no maintenance feature that can be added to waterfalls anywhere.

Man made fountains and waterfalls often have wired lights but to see these popping up around natural waterfalls would be pretty cool. Hawaii or similar tourist destinations with lots of waterfalls could benefit from this.

Not enough flow with this one probably. https://www.flickr....614@N02/29114303511
Still illustrates the idea. [doctorremulac3, Mar 04 2018]

       //to see these popping up around natural waterfalls would be pretty cool.// Noooooooooo! Next, the lights will be sponsored and will be MacDonald's Red or Bud Light Blue.   

       I can only [-] for the suggestion.

       Except that they wouldn't.   

       I think you're seeing capitalists under the bed.

       Well, I'm more opposed to the idea of electrifying nature in general, whether by capitalism or otherwise. And hey, if a guy who runs a biotech startup isn't a capitalist, please tell me who is.

       Max, I call everybody a commie, it's my MO. Don't take it personally.   

       And I respect you even if you don't like my waterfall light idea.

       This would be a good addition to urinals

       [+] pretty, and I don't see the harm.
